Does Li Lash contain bimatropost?

Postby chlark » Thu Dec 06, 2007 4:39 pm

I've contacted the manufacturer of this eyelash conditioner thru email countless of times but never returned even a single one. Does anybody know if this has that ingredient?

Hello Chlark,

I called them also and a rep called me back today but she didn't know the answer. She promised to have someone call me back shortly...

I'll keep you posted :)

HI Pulpe2

Thanks. Please let me know as soon as you hear word from them. I'm just wondering what's taking them long to answer it. I've started emailing them last week of November and still they have no answer. Anyway, thanks in advance.

No one has called me back so far but I've contacted Make Me Heal and apparently, they plan to carry Lilash soon. They will surely have this answer and will let us know faster...

I hope Make Me Heal does not carry a product for which the marketers refuse to disclose the ingredients ! If you have no idea what's in it, it could be water and flour for all you know. You wouldn't want to pay $140 for .18 oz of water and flour, would you ?

The cosmeceutical industry is SUCH a ripoff !! It's amazing. Big claims but a lot of mystery when it comes to facts. And people fall for it, that's probably the most amazing thing. I can't imagine anyone going to a store and forking over $140 for a box that you can't open to see what's inside.

I find it really absurd that the LiLash web site tells you that if you allergic to any of the ingredients you shouldn't use the product ... but they refuse to disclose the ingredients !

I sent them a message yesterday through their "contact us" form, telling them that I have allergies and want to follow their advice to not use their product if I am allergic to any of the ingredients, so I am requesting a list of ingredients .... and they haven't replied back yet. I'm not surprised.

My lashes are much longer and thicker. i'm not a skincare person but i'm really happy with this product. :D i was looking at their website again and it looks like they are coming out with a new product. i signed up and it is a brow thing. has anyone heard about that?

Good for you!

Postby chlark » Wed Feb 20, 2008 2:35 pm

Glad to hear that the product is working!I actually want to try them but haven't found a lot of feedbacks from other forumers. I don't want to spend $140 for something I don't even know if it actually works. Did you take a before and after photos of your eyelashes?If you did, could you please post it so I can see your eyelashes growth. How long have you been using the product since you saw a change?

Ingredient list

Postby chlark » Wed Feb 20, 2008 2:38 pm

By the way, does Lilash have an Ingredient list on the box it came in?Does it say anything about bimatropost, the supposed ingredient that would harm vision?

My daughters friend bought this Li Lash product a month ago and is getting great results from it. I just ordered today, and was told I would get it within 2-3 days. I'll post further updates as to my experiences with it. I'm 44 and my lashes are short ad thin due to surgical menopause now.
With their 90 day money back promise, I figure it's worth a shot. Most other stores offer 30, and maybe 60 day , but since you need 4 -8 weeks to see results in most cases, 90 day seems better to me.


I don't believe Li-lash contains the drug that Marini product did at one point. .
There is also another company making a lash stimulator called "StarLash" - product name "Elevont".. They list their ingredients on the web page as being as follows :
"The Starlash Eyelash Enhancer includes 21 vitamins and nutrients known to stimulate hair cell regeneration. The following is the complete list of Starlash s natural, nourishing ingredients: Water, Lactococcus Ferment, Propylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol Denat, Glycosaminoglycans, Phospholipids, Sodium PCA, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Arginine, Lysine, Glycine, Prolyne, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Hexamidine Diisethionate, 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1, 3-Diol.

What do you think of the ingredient comparison?

Check out the link above, then enter the Lilash ingredient "trinorprosta" and choose "PubChem Substance" in the pull down box on the left of the search box....according to these results, trinorprosta, is apparently in the same DRUG CLASS as bimotropost. I'm not sure why it is allowed to be used in LiLash, but I've used it without any problems and it works well!

Apparently, the active ingredient in LiLash is trinorprosta. Now, if I could only get my hands on some trinoprosta so I don't have to pay $150 a pop for this stuff!

I use LiLash (have had the same tube for over 9 mos now) and it does work. I used it daily for the first month or so and have used it every other day since then. I had read on another forum that it did, indeed, include a prostaglandin analog. (Reason why I bought it). I had used the original JM Age Intervention Eyelash Conditioner and Revitalash before they changed their formulas (those worked too).

Best $$ I've ever spent
